in detroit. >> i completely agree with that. let's talk about immigration reform. and the latino community. again, i'm just going down their list. so, you know. so john boehner on november 14th says, we have no intention of ever going to conference on the senate bill. he even, you know, kind of brushed off those two sweet, precious girls who are trying to talk to him while he was having his breakfast. the one person,on than, who had made some inroads, i think you had wrote about this, was chris christie. this week he had a major change of heart, didn't he? >> yes. it was the week after thanksgiving. it was late november. chris christie won re-election in new jersey by winning 51% of the latino vote. and how did he get that vote? by campaigning on -- by saying he would sign the new jersey version of the dream act. he had lots of people, latinos, on record as saying i voted for him because of this. and then sometime around november 27th, on a radio show, he was asked about this. he said, well, i -- i don't favor the senate version of this bill. i don't favor it. all the sudden you're like, w

undocumented immigrants than any president previous president in the history of the united states. so there are some things that the president has done to really annoy the latino voter. now, i have to add and caution people who might say this ii a great chance now for the republicans. the way the republicans can torpedo this chance among hispanic social security to keep a point of view when it comes to immigration reform. i think if republicans are smart now, they will seize this obvious decline in popularity, this reflex approval of the president among latinos and say, as bill o'reilly has said, as sean hannity has said, let's be more open minded and more modern and let's be more reform oriented when it comes to immigration. we can get this vital voting block on our corner. >> who is doing that right now? >> who on the republican side? >> who in your mind? >> there are some voices. mostly comment tears. i have to say, rather than elected officials. you hear people like cantor, for instance, these are guys -- paul ryan, these are guys that could very easily influence the gop away from
the congress does last until 2014. there is still a possibility of immigration reform. but right now, december 2013, tamron, this congress doesn't have anything to show for it other than resolving a government shutdown that lasted 16 days to be able to extend the nation's borrowing limit to just a couple of months. outside of that it doesn't have much to show for it. all of the work getting done, this congress really hasn't been able to tie its shoe laces. >> looking forward to the next year, it seems it's dreadful in that we're not seeing a change in tone of particularly from republicans on some of the things that many people thought we would see, particularly immigration reform. >> that's right, tamron, the one thing we'll look for is that change is possible. the tone that you have right now can be very different two months later. there are all of these events and circumstances that can change things. there are people hoping as bad as 2013 has been for all of the political players, 2014 is a better year. >> let's hope so. thank you very much. we appreciate it, mark. >> now to colorado where

off the terror watch list. frankly the nationalization immigration law, once you labeled someone on a terrorist, it's very difficult to take them off. and that did happen as you said in 2008, it took an act of congress. we actually had to pass legislation, condoleezza went to the hill and asked them to pass the legislation and finally president bush signed that law, signed that legislation into law. but today, i understand from many high ranking anc officials homeland security continues to treat some of them as needing a waiver to get into the united states, which is an embarrassment and what secretary rice said today, at the time, we can't allow president mandela, a man of his stature to be continue to be treated as a terrorist by the united states. we needed to do this and do it before he passed away. but also, we need to honor his memory today by also making sure that homeland security honors of legislation that secretary kerry and for that matter senator obama when they were both senators, helped to pass. so, yes, officially they are off the terror list but the way in which h
